What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Poppy Louise Littleton is not afraid of anything . . . almost. Fans of Ladybug Girl and other girl-power heroines will fall in love with this spunky character!

Poppy Louise Littleton thinks vampires are cute and mummies are funny. She’s positive a tarantula would make a perfect pet. All her imaginary friends are monsters. Is there anything that will scare her? Her sister, Petunia, is determined to find out. . . .

In this inviting picture book, Jenna McCarthy brings us a new character who feels at once modern and timeless. Girls and boys will recognize themselves in Poppy Louise (and maybe sometimes in her sister, Petunia) and will gobble up Molly Idle’s deliciously cinematic spreads, which highlight the drama of Poppy Louise’s escapades.

Poppy Louise is just the kind of friend I need, someone who is bold and spunky, a little braver than I am who can step up when courage fails others and still enjoy the companionship of friends in slightly tamer activities. Props to Jenna McCarthy for letting her off easily at the end when her courage might just have faltered for a moment. I love Molly Idle’s marvelous illustrations. Masterful use of white space and many full-page illustrations make this book a visual delight.
